Forum: etree Subject: new upload -- file deriver question

I've just uploaded to etree my flac-24 live music files for a show to go onto the LMA. It was my first seed ever. It also involved setting up a new Band Name. Everything worked fine. Thanks etree and archive dot org's for making all this possible.

Just curious... do you know about how long it takes the robot file deriver to make the file derivatives -- when will clients browsing this show on the LMA see "these files" listed on this concert webpage?

looks good. the show is very fresh (just a few hours). the deriver will make mp3's if the files pass all file checks. these will show up in a few hours / 1 day.

if it was encoded with FLAC 1.2.X it will fail. currently archive.org can only support 24-bit flac's of 1.1.X ...

post here if you have problems.

hey Tyler, thanks for the quick heads-up on the Flac version issue. Etree's docs don't mention this stuff, as far as what I read there. I posted a "which Flac.exe version" question on a Forum I found for tech-support for CD-Tag. (I like the heck outta CD-Tag!)

Then I figured, "why not try and run Flac.exe from my CLI?" So I did, and I ran Flac.exe with the "?" switch. It worked! The text string displayed says it's Flac 1.1.2

I'm hoping these Flac-24s will all derive down to MP3s, ZIPs, and the streamable formats. The Arabesque band, and their live music recordings are extremely rare and precious. I felt it was my DUTY to get these amazing tapes put out there. Thanks again for making all this possible.

ps: wow, Tyler... I just looked at the new Arabesque show's webpage -- my Flac-24s are deriving and are listing there! thanks.
